It's a Miracle

Okay so I have the best news ever!! Rosalie slept from 9:40 last night until 3:00 am! It's a miracle! This girl has only ever slept until 1:00 when she has gone to bed at this time, so I am thrilled. I slept solid from 10:00 pm to 3:00 am when she woke up, and it felt sooooo good! I forgot what it was like to sleep for more than 2 or 3 hours at a time :) Then she impressed me even more by sleeping from 6:20 am to 8:00 am. I fed her at about 6:00 am before I went to the gym, and Chanse texted me at the gym to tell me she was still sleeping! She hardly ever sleeps past 5:00-6:00 so this was another huge step for her! I am hoping that this may be a good sign for the future, but I am not necessarily going to count on it haha.

 After Chanse headed off to school, Rose and I set off to Target to get a few things. She was so good for me as I pushed her around the store! It may sound silly but it brings me so much joy to be able to take this little one around with me now. She is growing and changing so much each day, and I don't want to miss any of it!

 I even got a few smiles out of her when she was awake. Isn't her double chin the best?!

I had two nursing pads left so I had to get some. I have never tried this kind before, so hopefully they work well. Have any mom's out there used these before? What did you think?

I made myself a yummy salad when I got home, and it was super easy to make. I just used grilled chicken, lettuce, a tomato, cheese, and dressing. It made me very happy ha. Isn't my life so exciting? ;)  Diet Moutain Dew is a huge weakness for me, and now I that I am nursing I have stocked up on the caffeine free ones. Maybe one day I will give up pop....

And while I am talking about food, look what I made for dinner :) I am bad about cooking regularly for my poor hubby so I am trying to cook more for him. He told me that he really liked these, and it made my day. You can find the recipe here.

I have come across this quote quite a few times, and I love it! But I see it completely differently now that I am a mom. I often find myself thinking to myself and saying to others that I can't wait until Rose starts smiling, giggling, and recognizing me more. And while I am so excited for these things, I know I am going to miss the moments that I am having with Rosalie now as soon as they pass. I need to just treasure each moment of each day with her, and enjoy my time with my beautiful baby girl.


Do you find yourself focusing too much on the future and not enjoying the present?
What is one of your food/snack weaknesses?
